I wanted to make a quilt for each of my children this year. I had a different idea for each one. I started somewhat early and completed Benton's after a long delay over quilting approach. Eamon's was completed next and went really quickly. Made out of old jeans, I didn't spend a lot of time on layout and quilting it was a breeze with nice straight lines. Then came Aine's quilt.
Originally I wanted to do circles. That idea was quickly scrapped when I realized just what it would entail. I then decided half-square triangles would be perfect. This was the plan up until the day of execution. Due to other gift-making, I did not start Aine's quilt until Wednesday, December 22. When faced with an iminent deadline, I reverted to a quilt made of full 10 inch squares. I laid out the squares, but I couldn't get it perfect. I decided perfection was for those who pre-plan. I just had to make it, so I forged ahead. It came out beautifully.
So, at 10:53am on Christmas eve, I am finished with the quilts I wanted to make for my children. I hope they enjoy them and remember the love I hold for them.
